Google Search is a place full of Easter eggs if you have a keen eye for detecting them. Last year, the company added a good number of 3D animals. Since then, it has only expanded the host of AR objects.
It also includes 3D AR objects of space, athletes, and science. Well, in the latest report by 9to5Google, Google Search is now getting a whole bunch of 3D AR objects of monuments.
Just like every other 3D object on Google Search, you will be able to able to rotate the object 360 degree and even zoom in/out. the source notes that these 3D AR monuments aren’t of the highest resolution. They are similar to viewing objects on Google Earth.
However, there is one key feature over Google Earth that makes Google Search a bit more interesting. That is the ability to place these 3D monuments in your real environment.
Currently, users are seeing a miniature model of these popular monuments. It will be interesting if Google could add life-like sizes of the monuments so that users could stand inside the Arc de Triomphe, similar to a 360-degree Photo Sphere panoramic.
A total of 98 3D monuments have been added to Google Search
The reason for not including a lifelike size of these monuments could be because, understandably, the actual size of these monuments is massive.
Besides, it would require a lot of labor, as mapping each location with a Street View backpack and creating a life-size model of these monuments is no easy task.
Talking about these monuments, there are a total of 98 3D AR monuments have been added. This number is quite huge, and it includes basically all the popular monuments across the globe.
All the 98 3D monuments are available on Google Search on both Android and iOS. Some of the popular monuments include the Eiffel Tower, Empire State Building, Arc de Triomphe, Sri Sri Radha Radhanath Temple, and Mount Rushmore National Memorial.
To view any of the added monuments in 3D, you need to search for the popular monument. Then scroll down to see a card that says “View in 3D”. Tapping on this button will bring the 3D model. You can hit the “View in your space” button to place the model in the real environment.
Obviously, you won’t get the actual feeling of standing next to such popular buildings, but these are good enough to educate students or people about these historic buildings.
